FOR FULL SIZE SCALE R.F.=1 OR ( 1:1 ) MEANS DRAWING & OBJECT ARE OF SAME SIZE. Other RFs are described as 1:10, 1:100, 1:1000, 1:1,00,000 SCALES DIMENSIONS OF LARGE OBJECTS MUST BE REDUCED TO ACCOMMODATE ON STANDARD SIZE DRAWING SHEET. THIS REDUCTION CREATES A SCALE OF THAT REDUCTION RATIO, WHICH IS GENERALLY A FRACTION.. SUCH A SCALE IS CALLED REDUCING SCALE AND THAT RATIO IS CALLED REPRESENTATIVE FACTOR.

We have seen that the plain scales give only two dimensions, such as a unit and its subunit or its fraction X Y Z The principle of construction of a diagonal scale is as follows. Let the XY in figure be a subunit. From Y draw a perpendicular YZ to a suitable height. Join XZ. Divide YZ in to 10 equal parts. Draw parallel lines to XY from all these divisions and number them as shown. From geometry we know that similar triangles have their like sides proportional. Consider two similar triangles XYZ and 7 7Z, we have 7Z / YZ = 77 / XY (each part being one unit) Means 7 7 = 7 / 10. x X Y = 0.7 XY :. Similarly 1 – 1 = 0.1 XY 2 – 2 = 0.2 XY Thus, it is very clear that, the sides of small triangles, which are parallel to divided lines, become progressively shorter in length by 0.1 XY. The solved examples ON NEXT PAGES will make the principles of diagonal scales clear. The diagonal scales give us three successive dimensions that is a unit, a subunit and a subdivision of a subunit.

COMPARATIVE SCALES: These are the Scales having same R.F. but graduated to read different units. These scales may be Plain scales or Diagonal scales and may be constructed separately or one above the other. EXAMPLE NO. 7 : A distance of 40 miles is represented by a line 8 cm long. Construct a plain scale to read 80 miles.

Figure to the right shows a part of a plain scale in which length A-O represents 10 cm. If we divide A-O into ten equal parts, each will be of 1 cm. Now it would not be easy to divide each of these parts into ten equal divisions to get measurements in millimeters. Now if we take a length BO equal to = 11 such equal parts, thus representing 11 cm, and divide it into ten equal divisions, each of these divisions will represent 11 / 10 – 1.1 cm. The difference between one part of AO and one division of BO will be equal 1.1 – 1.0 = 0.1 cm or 1 mm. This difference is called Least Count of the scale. Minimum this distance can be measured by this scale. The upper scale BO is the vernier.The combination of plain scale and the vernier is vernier scale. Vernier Scales: These scales, like diagonal scales, are used to read to a very small unit with great accuracy. It consists of two parts – a primary scale and a vernier. The primary scale is a plain scale fully divided into minor divisions. As it would be difficult to sub-divide the minor divisions in ordinary way, it is done with the help of the vernier. The graduations on vernier are derived from those on the primary scale A 0 B engineering108.com

Example 10: Draw a vernier scale of RF = 1 / 25 to read centimeters upto 4 meters and on it, show lengths 2.39 m and 0.91 m SOLUTION: Length of scale = RF X max. Distance = 1 / 25 X 4 X 100 = 16 cm CONSTRUCTION: ( Main scale) Draw a line 16 cm long. Divide it in 4 equal parts. ( each will represent meter ) Sub-divide each part in 10 equal parts. ( each will represent decimeter ) Name those properly. CONSTRUCTION: ( vernier) Take 11 parts of Dm length and divide it in 10 equal parts. Each will show 0.11 m or 1.1 dm or 11 cm and construct a rectangle Covering these parts of vernier. TO MEASURE GIVEN LENGTHS: (1) For 2.39 m : Subtract 0.99 from 2.39 i.e = 1.4 m The distance between 0.99 ( left of Zero) and 1.4 (right of Zero) is 2.39 m (2) For 0.91 m : Subtract 0.11 from 0.91 i.e – 0.11 =0.80 m The distance between 0.11 and 0.80 (both left side of Zero) is 0.91 m m 0.91 m METERS Vernier Scale engineering108.com

Then construct a triangle of given sides. ( You are supposed to measure angles x, y and z) To measure angle at x: Take O-A distance in compass from cords scale and mark it on lower side of triangle as shown from corner x. Name O & A as shown. Then O as center, O-A radius draw an arc upto upper adjacent side.Name the point B. Take A-B cord in compass and place on scale of cords from Zero.

Take cord length of 25 0 angle from scale of cords in compass and from A cut the arc at point B.Join B with O. The angle AOB is thus 25 0 To construct 1150 angle at O. This scale can measure or construct angles upto 900 only directly. Hence Subtract from We get 75 0 angle, which can be constructed with this scale. Extend previous arc of OA radius and taking cord length of 75 0 in compass cut this arc at B 1 with A as center. Join B 1 with O.
